Over the past two years, CDA has partnered with InterAction to identify and understand risk management “traps” that limit organizations’ abilities to meet humanitarian needs and adapt to complex contexts, as well as the strategic changes that can break these traps.

Risk III: From Evidence to Action defines strong risk management and the success factors of flexible and people-centered policy and practice. Risk is inevitable in humanitarian contexts. Risk III is a significant step to equip responsive and quality program delivery in some of the most challenging contexts.

This publication builds on the Risk III Learning and Resource guides. It highlights common risk management traps and the strategic changes needed to break them. Humanitarian success depends on good risk management. Read on to learn how your organization can thoughtfully manage risk.
